At No Cost, Students Earn Diplomas Along With 2-Year Associate's Degrees


Although most schools offer accelerated opportunities for students to earn
college credit while still in high school, they tend to attract high
achievers and students who have plenty of resources. College-credit programs
tailored to disadvantaged students, including those who might drop out, are
less common, but some schools are seeking to fill that niche as part of a
movement called early-college high schools. These schools put secondary
students on college campuses, often on track to earn two-year associate's
degrees along with their high school diplomas at no cost. Washington Post,
